Hi I'm Shazib, I'm a software engineer based in the Midlands building back-end and desktop applications, occasionally mobile apps, and everything in between! My goal is always to build performant products that deliver native experiences.
After graduating from Cranfield University, I joined the small development team at TandG Apps full time where I spent most of my time building native iOS & Android apps. Shortly afterwards I moved to Mercedes-AMG F1 as an Aerodynamcics Software Engineer where I work on a number of bespoke projects for the aero department.
Some technologies I've worked with recently:
The aerodynamics software team at Mercedes is a small department, and as such I have significantly enhanced the software development capability. I have been involved in maintaining & re-architecting legacy (VC++ MFC) systems; as well as leading the charge to moderning (C# .NET) this older tech stack. I helped intoduce good unit testing & mocking practices. More recently I have been involed in a further push for modernisation by leveraging my existing skills to develop an Andoid app (Xamarin, .NET Core Web API).
I am responsible for the full production stack, including requirements gathering, testing, deployment, database deployments, and keeping close relationships with client and business needs, as well as working with other teams in the business for cross-department projects. I have contributed to deployments on highly critial systems, such as those running on trackside infrastructure. My introduction to the team also allowed increased capability for fringe projects, such as a custom STL file clash checker and introducing besoke integration with CAD software & MS Office.
Promoted to a more senior role at the company, I was directly responsible for client management and overseeing iOS projects through to completion, as well as leading other developers on the team. I also took on a support role as a developer for the other projects such as Android project and web servers & apps.
Joined a small team part-time during my MSc as a general applications developer to provide assitance wherever it was needed. The majority of my work was on Mobile App developement, which forays into back-end management.
